Will misoprostol tablet cause any side effects ?

I m miscarrying at the moment and was prescribed Misoprostol my by Dr. I started taking the meds yesterday and just took my second dose. When I took it yesterday, it caused a strange sensation in my chest . It was directly in the middle (behind sternum) and went from right below my clavical to the bottom of my ribs. It feels like a swelling and then relaxation of something inside me. It doesn t hurt, it s just really odd and i ve never felt anything like it before. I just took my second and final dose of the meds and am having the sensation again. Should I be worried?

Hi,
No you needn't worry at all as the drug is given for the treatment of drug induced gastric ulcers.It might cause diarrhea , constipation , nausea etc but all symptoms are momentary.

Hello, I am on Warfarin for A-Fib. I had a bad cold and was coughing a lot. During one coughing fit I experienced a sharp pain and slight swelling just at the bottom of my rib cage. Applied ice and pain subsided but is painful to cough at all. That was about 5 days ago. Today I notice a huge bruise across my side and stomach. There is no pain except when I cough. I m aware of the bruising factor when taking warfarin, it s just the size of this bruise is alarming. Any thoughts ?
